Suns guard Devin Bookers is making some serious accusations against the NBA.

Earlier this week, the Suns lost to the Lakers 122-111 after the Lakers shot 46 free throws compared to 20 free throws shot by the Suns.

After the game, Booker ripped into the reffing and implied the NBA was rigging games to get the Lakers into the playoffs.

“After the game is controlled in the first half and we’re down 20 to 30 free-throws, it’s kind of easier for them to give us some after that,” he said. “I watch these games every night, so I kind of understand what’s going on. I understand the agendas that are being pushed and trying to just get that out of my head and go out there and compete.”

Suns fans on Twitter were also frustrated with how the game was called.

Suns head coach Monty Williams also ripped into the refs after the game.
